A few losses in previous drafts and our team is drastically different. Winning the first in any but the Bargs draft and everything is different.
Without a doubt, the results haven't been there and ultimately that's all that matters but BC rarely frustrates in the moment of any one decision. It's only after it's turned sour that it often seems so naive in hindsight. Maybe that's because he's an expert salesman. Maybe that's because many relate to his line of thinking in theory and feel bad about his lack of luck but he's certainly likeable.
I know he should probably lose his job after this and several other disappointing seasons but deep down I'd love to see him somehow save his job with a Hail Mary play that workers short term and long. I like BC. I can often see his logic. I'm equally disappointed as any at how early things have worked out. It's really as simple ad that for me.
I completely disagree. Most of what he does actually makes no sense. It makes sense if you believe in his comparisons where he absolutely overrates the players he signs or trades for, and compares them to star players or key players on other teams. Bargnani as Dirk? Kapono as their Stojakovic, Landry Fields as their freakin' Shane Battier? The list goes on and on. To make things worse, he doesn't understand the most important aspects of a successful basketball team. If he did, he wouldn't sign the type of players he does. If fact, his biggest problem is his ability to understand how to build a basketball team. He may be a business genius or whatever, but as a GM he is terrible.
